Philadelphia Tour Overview
Sports, cheesesteaks, Rocky, the Liberty Bell, and a say-whatever-I-want attitude is what Philadelphia is known for… and we’ll cover that on your Philadelphia tour… but Philly has so much more to offer.
In 1681, King Charles II gave William Penn a large piece of land. Penn gathered up some Quaker friends and journeyed up the Delaware River to found Philadelphia. Philly quickly became an important colonial city. During the American Revolution, the First and Second Continental Congresses were held here. The city was then the temporary capital of the United States for ten years, from 1790 to 1800.
Known as the Cradle of Liberty, Philadelphia is where modern American democracy was formed. Explore the Most Historic Mile in America and discover things you never knew about the Declaration of Independence, Benjamin Franklin, and the Liberty Bell. The City of Brotherly Love is more than history. Admire the city’s thousands of murals, shop local designs at a hip boutique, or enjoy world-class cuisine around every corner of Philly.
